MEREDITH — Fun and food will be in abundance at Moulton Farm's Foliage Festival on Saturday and Sunday, October 5-6. The festival, which will run both days from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., includes family fun activities including tractor rides, visits with farm animals, munchkin mayhem, a bounce house for children and more. Food for lunches will be available. Plus the farm's corn maze will be open and Cider Bellies will be making fresh, warm, cider doughnuts.
Doughnuts will play a central role in one of the weekend's fun activities. On Saturday from noon until 2 p.m. the laughter will ring out as contestants challenge each other to a "doughnut on a string" eating contest.
"It should be great fun," says Rob Stephens, manager of the farm's popular market. "Eating a Cider Bellies doughnut is always a great experience. Attempting to eat one without hands while it's dangling from a string will just add to the fun and laughter." The contests are free and open to all ages.
Other Saturday activities will include free face painting and live music. On Sunday, activities will include a magic show starting at 1 p.m., corn bag races, and a free cookie decorating activity starting at 2 p.m. "It's the chance to let your creative side loose. If you're talented, your effort will look great and you can give it away. If you're not happy with your effort, you can eat the evidence," says Stephens with a laugh.
Moulton Farm is located at 18 Quarry Road off Route 25 in Meredith. The farm practices sustainable agriculture and is dedicated to providing the highest quality fruits and vegetables while preserving its rich soil for future generations. In addition to growing its own produce, the farm offers pumpkins, fall decorating supplies, cider doughnuts, baked goods and a quality selection of cheeses, meats, and other items from northern New England producers.
